Signs of the Times was a photographic project about the British home. In 1990, 2000 people responded to an ad for volunteers to be photographed and filmed in their homes, discussing all aspects of their personal taste. 50 households were chosen to take part.

This project is a serious exploration of British taste. With poignant, comic and controversial results, it uniquely reveals the ‘good taste’ of the British heartland.


‘I don’t think it’s anything particularly forced on Deborah. We’ve just always enjoyed the same sort of things.’ From ‘Sign of the Times’ by Martin Parr/Magnum Photos, 1991
